Venus Williams settled the score today. The seventh-seeded Williams crushed Croatia's Karolina Sprem, 6-2, 6-2, to avenge her Wimbledon loss and surge into the second round of the Swisscom Challenge in Zurich today.
The match was a rematch of Sprem's shocking 7-6(5), 7-6(6) second-round upset of Williams at Wimbledon in in a meeting marred by a scoring error committed by chair umpire Ted Watts in the second-set tiebreak.

This time, Williams, who was sporting a new shorter hairstyle and a large glittering ring on her left hand, dressed down Sprem with deep drives from the baseline. She broke Sprem's serve twice in each set to wrap up the win in 54 minutes. Williams will play either Tatiana Golovin or Ana Ivanovic in the second round.

The stunning setback to Sprem at Wimbledon marked Williams' earliest exit from a Grand Slam tournament since she fell from the second round of Wimbledon in 1997. It snapped her streak of four consecutive appearances in the Wimbledon final and marked the first time since Williams' 1999 quarterfinal loss to Steffi Graf that she succumbed to a woman other than sister Serena.

In other results, eighth-seeded Russian Nadia Petrova beat American wild card Lisa Raymond, 6-4, 6-3; ninth-seeded Ai Sugiyama was a 6-2, 6-3 victor over Shinobu Asagoe in an all-Japanese meeting; Daniela Hantuchova defeated Vera Douchevina, 6-1, 6-4; Nathalie Dechy stopped Swiss wild card Timea Bacsinszky, 6-1, 6-4; Alicia Molik overcame Silvia Farina Elia, 6-1, 7-6(5); Paola Suarez edged Jelena Kostanic, 6-3, 3-6, 6-4; and Fabiola Zuluaga handled Mary Pierce, 6-3, 6-2.

'large glittering ring on her left hand'?

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

"The Wimbledon match wasn't on my mind at all," Williams insisted afterwards. "I just see that game as a one in a million kind of thing. It's ancient history."

"I don't think she necessarily played her best today, but she's a very good player," said Williams.

"My game was nice. I was serving well, returning well, just an all-around good game. A lot of pace. That's one of my strengths, to use my pace and power to dictate."
